Backing up data

About backing up data

A backup is a copy of data, which can be used to restore and recover the original data after a data loss event.

NetVault offers a selection of plug-ins, which integrate with the native application programming interfaces (APIs) to provide application-consistent backups and recovery of data. Depending on the application type, these plug-ins provide multiple methods and options to back up the selected data.

In general, NetVault supports the following features:

To back up your data, you must create and submit a backup job. The NetVault WebUI provides a configuration wizard that helps you to perform this task. You can run the wizard from the Guided Configuration or Create Backup Job link in the Navigation pane.

A backup job definition includes the following components:

Source device options (available only to the Plug-in for Consolidation, Plug-in for Data Copy, and Secondary Copy jobs)

These components are stored in NetVault Sets. For more information about NetVault Sets, see About NetVault Sets.

Each backup job has a Job ID number and a Job Name. The Job ID number is an auto-generated number. The Job Name is a user‑defined string, which allows you to easily identify the job when monitoring its progress, viewing the job logs, or selecting a backup to restore data. A backup is stored as a Saveset on the media.

NetVault generates a backup index for each backup, and writes this index to the backup media and NetVault Database.

The backup index includes a header which contains information required for restoring data. There is no maximum limit on the index file size or the number of items that you can include in a backup job.

Backup indexes stored in the NetVault Database are called Online Indexes. Online indexes allow you to quickly scan through the contents of a saveset without loading the media.
